It’s July 11, 2015, and time for Foreign Languages at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)
This website provides free, multi-media foreign language lessons (from Arabic to Urdu) along with some interactive forums and opportunities to practice what you’ve learned with other language learners and native speakers. You can use visual and audio aids to learn to speak the language, and learn how to read and write the language as well.
A new page opens requiring registration to access the free language course. You must confirm your registration via email. When you do that, you are taken to a webpage where you are asked to provide additional information – but you have the option to click on “skip” to avoid answering those questions.
Once you’ve completed the free registration process, you can access a foreign language course for beginner through advanced levels. They also offer quickie travel versions of the courses for those who simply want to learn a few words and phrases in anticipation of visiting another country. (These kinds of “quickie courses” can be useful in providing enough exposure to a language, that a student can decide if it’s a language they really want to study in earnest.)
Plus, this website provides a community forum so that you can interact with others to practice language skills. You can even have your speaking and writing submissions reviewed and scored by native speakers who will rate your proficiency and give you tips for improvement.
The site also provide the ability to track your weekly progress, earn points for completing exercises, and engage in friendly competitions to motivate you to learn more.
